I'm really not looking for advice on how to "feel it out". Call me crazy but I'd like to use actual recommended torque specs while assembling my suspension. If you overtighten you could damage the threads and/or never get the bolt off again. If you undertighten you risk a component of suspension coming apart during heavy handling.

Please, if anybody owns an actual service manual or knows a dealer with this information, let me know what the real torque specs are.

Ok, springs are in! It took about 2 hours. Faster than I thought they would be.

They are Tein S Tech springs and they are supposed to be lower in the front than the rear, but they are lower in the rear than the front. I'm guessing they have to settle some.

yeah it'll take a bit to settle down. all i can say about specs if they dont even come from the factory at reccomended spec. and toyota 7m motors all had the incorrect specs assigned for the head bolts!!! one of the most crucial things other than the crank and rod bearings and they were wrong they lost soo many engine to blown head gaskets.
